Forced FFA Membership


Dirk68 September 6, 2012

Is it possible for a school to change the course requirements for an agricultural and biotechnology class to include a forced mandatory FFA membership?
FFA activities are subject to grading and this is one of the arguments for the mandatory membership. To my knowledge these memberships were always voluntary. What do you think about this?

Hi Dirk68,

Public schools making anything mandatory is often a cause of contention. Ask to speak to the teacher and the department head. If you don't feel comfortable with the answer, the principal is the next step. After that, try the district offices.
